I always share the message of the importance of self-care with my clients who are job hunting and/or seeking to better their lives. Many of my fellow practitioners also realize the importance of a holistic approach. We are more alike than we are different. Pat Cheeks from National Transitions, an Integrative and Intuitive Approach to Healing, knows the importance about the holistic healing quality...especially during life transitions. Pat is an amazing professional and does terrific work so check her out at: http://patcheeks.com/life-mentoring-natural-transitions/.
My favorite thing in life is to help people become their best selves. I love to watch people in their element so I do anything I can to help make that happen. It starts with checking your ego! We are all here to help one another as we navigate this journey called life. We are more alike than we are different.
Somewhere along the way our world became extremely competitive and complicated. Children are now taught to compete, not cooperate. It starts at such an early age as children now graduate from kindergarten...no offense but what does that even mean? Is that really the best route for society to take? What I know for sure is that our college students are overwhelmed and stressed out before they even start day one of college. What are we doing to our kids? Is that hyper competitiveness really necessary for success in life? Isn’t the definition of “success” a very personal thing?
Many people are so busy working so hard only to reach the pinnacle of a high status position to find emptiness. They are merely getting more of what didn’t make them happy in the first place. Really think about that statement. Losing valuable time and energy that we could all use to really experience life and enjoy time with our loved ones and friends. How many times have you heard people say that they would like to do something but they are simply too busy and do not have the time or energy. We are more alike than we are different.
In this fast paced world it helps to learn to slow down. S-L-O-W down. Hit pause. Be in the moment. Take that long walk regardless of how busy you are and really look at the world. I did that yesterday and literally this gold leaf fell into my hand. I looked at it carefully and it had a hole in it in the shape of a heart. This leaf drifted down and landed directly in my hand. Have you ever had anything like that happen? We are more alike than we are different. One day this heart image just appeared on my deck. Symbols are all around us.
I have witnessed how the world becomes better when we help one another in life. Take the basic “pay it forward” process and you can easily see how it works. Focus on finding the common ground and do your part to make the world a better place. When you learn to cooperate, help others and spread a little love you will enrich your own life tenfold! We are more alike than we are different!
